The library should be within a new city hall building or in Balbao Park and not by the baseball park. Many people think libraries are obsolete because of the Internet. But the real purpose of a library is to share the cost of learning materials irrespective of the media. They say they need a new YMCA downtown but can´t afford the real estate. Well put the YMCA and the New Library in the same building.

The library should be within a new city hall building or in Balbao Park and not by the baseball park.

They say they need a new city hall but it is expensive. They say they need a new library but it is expensive. Well combine the two in the same complex. A library is a resource for people who need to solve problems. Unfortunately too many naïve people think the purpose of a library is a physical warehouse to store books. But the real purpose of a library is to share the cost of learning materials irrespective of the media.

Many people think libraries are obsolete because of the Internet. They are wrong.
Librarians ensured quality materials were purchased so that you just did not end up with junk and innuendo. The traditional publishing industry did the same by not publishing everyone who wanted to be published. Do you want to live in a world in which only the wealthy can afford information and ideas while the poor go back to more ignorance and being manipulated

Libraries are thee most important institutions in this culture irrespective of how anti intellectual this culture is and continues to be. When city hall put the library by ballpark it basically was signifying its ignorance and apathy for the benefit of the real estate tycoons. Now people who ride the bus including the handicapped are suppose to take an extra bus to get to the new library further from the downtown central.

They say they need a new YMCA downtown but can´t afford the real estate. Well put the YMCA and the New Library in the same building. The old YMCA has had a stroke going on a hundred and the swimming pool has been closed for three years. Or is it that the city leaders don´t see the value of health practice
